Portrait is a string of recordings presenting contemporary composers with a unique musical signature. Ludovico Einaudi is one of them. This grand and prolific Italian composer creates works that dwell within us for a long time. A music which captivates the listener, a sonic landscape to discover.
Starting from the original versions starring this composer and brilliant pianist, I wished to explore these works with my violin, surrounded by the wonderful musicians of my string orchestra La Pietà. This is a revisit of his music, changing its texture, rethinking its character while bringing a new sonic dimension. I am happy to share with you my latest musical highlight. -- Angèle Dubeau
Joined by her string ensemble La Pietà, Dubeau brings out the classical side (as opposed to the easy-listening side) of this composer, particularly in textured tracks like Divenire, Life and Time Lapse, which features some gentle electronic undercurrents.
